Parkinson Disease is a life changer for patients in Door and Kewaunee counties and their families. So, Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church is bringing in a noted nurse practitioner to provide answers on the changes and challenges of the disease. Dacy Reimer, :: DAY-SEE RYHMER :: with Lakeside Neurocare in Fond du Lac, will speak to the church's Parkinson Disease Support Group on October 3rd. Reimer says education is needed for all who've been diagnosed with the disease and caregivers to understand what their future holds.
Riemer previously served with the Regional Parkinson Center in Milwaukee and worked with drug testing trials. She says patients and caregivers need to understand that medications have changed dramatically in recent years.
Dacy Reimer recommends patients and caregivers become active with Parkinson Disease support groups so they can see they're not facing the disease alone. Reimer's program is open to the public free of charge. It's scheduled for 12:30 PM, October 3rd at the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church on Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay.
